Step 5: Before you use your leather punch, you will want to adjust it so you get the right sized hole. I rotated my punch until I landed on the second to smallest hole.

Step 6: Place your punch about ¼ inch below the make you made on the corner of your leather. Squeeze the handles of your leather punch until it punctures the leather.

Step 7: Open your leather piece up. If you notice your punch did not go through the other side of your leather, you will want to give it a punch. You should be able to see an impression from your punch so you know where to press down.
